MV Plaza Mayor or MV reina sofia or other by Booking.com

I would like to use Booking.com to reserve my apartment in Madrid because of their no deposit and cancellation up to 2 days before politic. Not because I want to cancel a reservation but it could happen and would hate to loose so much money even if cancelled 1 month before... With Booking.com it doesn't seem as a problem.

I search and found MV Plaza Mayor, MV Reina Sofia and others - Many on this forum told me to stay around Plaza Mayor - Do you think those apartments are good choice? I feel that pictures of different places are all in the same page. It is difficult to know which floor they are located (I need an elevator if high) and if the picture are real - Can you help me choose... Thanks

Personally, I would book with Select Madrid (http://www.spain-select.com), which handles a few rather decent apartments around Plaza Santa Ana. Booking.com is just a general booking service, while Select Madrid has an office in Madrid.

Thanks Robert2533 but I was under the impression that Select Madrid was renting for a minimum of 7 days - I want 4 nights only - any suggestions of apartments name?

They do offer some shorter rentals, depending on the situation. I would email them for a recommendation (info@spain-select.com), but whichever apartment you pick, make sure it is one that they have had their designer redo. There are two around the corner from Plaza Santa Ana, and close to their office, that are very nice.

http://www.booking.com is a large and ever growing portal for all sorts of reservations. I have yet to read of any problems about the website. The review system is a little more honest that other portals as Booking.com only asks you to give a review of the establishment after you have booked and stayed there. other portals, where you can do a review, do not ask this all you have to do is sign on.

However the review system does have a small fault in that it does not show reviews if they amount to less than 5. This discriminates between large and small establishments as the latter will obviously receive more guests.

Hi,

I have made many reservations through booking.com and I can inform you that I have never once had any problems. They were really great. I booked through booking.com our vacations to Palma de Maiorca and had the cheapest and best vacations ever!

Would it be possible for Spain select to be less time consuming - even if we specified for a location of 4 nights, why do we have 55 answers but many of them are for 1 months or more....?
